What is now Woodlands Family Theme Park, Dartmouth was once the grounds of a local mansion, Oldstone. During the mid 13th century Oldstone belonged to the monks of Torre Abbey who owned extensive lands in Blackawton. One monk lived as a hermit in a cave, local villagers brought food to leave outside the cave for the monk, but they were afraid to enter the grounds after dark. It is still very eerie near the Monks Cave after dark.
